COP26: Considerations as the World Strives for Net Zero


COP26 is poised to set the course on emissions reductions from vehicles, but all the facts must be considered before policy is levied or future mistakes will only compound the problem. It isn’t as simple as designating tailpipe emissions as the determining factor of whether a vehicle is considered a “Zero Emissions Vehicle”. There must still be an accounting of where vehicles obtain their power and what emissions are produced in the manufacturing of the vehicle itself.



There are a number of process philosophies and improvement methods in the business world but, few are as popular or as effective as Lean Six Sigma. At 3DATX, these methods have had many positive impacts with far-reaching benefits for both the business and end-users. These methods are not only relevant to the PEMS industry or manufacturing but, have implications for
any type of business.

“Is COVID-19 Solving Our Air Pollution Problem?”​


What is our air pollution problem?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that air pollution kills an estimated 7 million people per year worldwide, and some 4.2 million premature deaths per year are caused by exposure to ambient (outdoor) air pollution[1]. The WHO estimates that 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air pollution levels exceed the WHO limits reflected in its guidelines.

Let’s review the data that was collected using a 3DATX parSYNC during our recent on road test comparison of car vs motorcycle.

“Deciding Your Emissions Test Route:  What to Consider”​


So, you’re thinking of undertaking some vehicle emissions testing and you’re wondering what to take into account when designing a test route? The first questions you have to ask yourself are:

What test am I wanting to perform?

What type of driving am I trying to capture?

What am I actually measuring?

Our next “Dio Does Things” takes you on the road with simultaneous testing between car and motorcycle using the 3DATX parSYNC®.

The video above shows an uninterrupted Periodic Technical Inspection demonstration of 2 vehicles using the 3DATX parSYNC® device. Both vehicles were 2015 VW Passats, one diesel the other gasoline.  Each were driven 1.5 km following a snap test.  Both tests were performed in under 13 minutes.
Ever wonder how the parSYNC® gets calibrated?  This video shows the process of calibrating the parSYNC® – both gaseous and particulate. Particle calibration is done using the 3DATX CA/GE™ system.

“…something to do.”​


I am an optimistic person by nature.

And in my opinion, planning always helps.

Before a crisis (or during, if caught off-guard), I have found it important to continuously assess a situation and to consider what the worst possible outcome may be. If I can think of a few options that may have a chance of success, I’m good.

“…keep moving forward.”​

“Let me tell you something you already know.

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.

It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. 

But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. 

That’s how winning is done!”

“Houston, we have a problem…”​

Without a doubt, 1995’s ‘Apollo 13‘, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, is one of my favorite all-time movies.

The reason is simple.

It is based on a true story, with very little of Hollywood’s famous ‘artistic license’ used, and demonstrates some of the most profound, life-or-death problem-solving concepts I have ever encountered on the big screen. And of course, the Apollo 13 crisis gave us the infamous phrase, “Houston, we have a problem.” So, there’s that.

“…It’s Always Something.”​


As the famous American Comedy show Saturday Night Live (SNL) character, ‘Roseanne Roseannadanna’ (portrayed by the late, great Gilda Radner) was known for saying in the 1970’s:

“…it just goes to show you, it’s always something — if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.”

…and her more sharply focused and to the point comment:

“…it’s always something.”
